Go Texan Day: We want to see your office's getups

When I was a little girl, I knew when it was rodeo season ? not because I was patiently awaiting the deep-fried everything and playing with goats at the petting zoo, which I definitely was ? but because on the Friday before the rodeo rolled out, I was dressed Texan to a T. I'd have tiny cowboy boots with a matching hat and a bandana around my neck; and a few years, my mom handmade my Western wear. While I might not still have her as my personal clothier, she instilled the tradition in me just?

How to grow your communication skills

Human communication is complex, but the first thing that comes to mind when we hear the word ?communication? is often spoken or written words. However, the words we speak and hear are just one way we communicate, and some studies show that most of our communication takes place through other means. Humans communicate in many different ways, such as verbal, nonverbal, body language and artistic communication, which is through images or music. The way we communicate with people affects all aspects?

Morey has long believed that you need three such players to be a legitimate championship contender, so he knows his work isn't done, but if the Chris Paul-James Harden combination works as well as it could in Mike D'Antoni's system, the Rockets are the second-best team in the Western Conference.

Tropical Storm Cindy makes landfall in Texas

The tropical storm, the first system of hurricane season that may affect the Houston area, is expected to barrel in early Thursday morning bringing winds as high as 50 mph, heavy rains and flooding to portions of southeast Texas and the Gulf Coast. The storm is expected to make landfall Thursday morning between 4 a.m. and 9 a.m. Some coastal areas along southeast Texas were already seeing an impact, with Galveston experiencing gusts of wind exceeding 40 miles per hour. Tree limbs were down in some coastal areas and isolated power outages had affected the region. Alabama and portions of Florida were also expected to get heavy rains and some flooding, with a tropical storm warning posted from San Luis Pass at the southern end of Galveston Island to the Florida Panhandle. Tropical storm warnings were also in effect for Chambers, Galveston and Liberty counties. Across the country, the tropical system also affected those in the Florida Panhandle, damaging homes and vehicles. Offshore, operators reported pulling workers from 40 oil and gas production platforms, or about 5 percent of the more than 700 manned platforms in the Gulf, and one drilling rig, according to the federal Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement. A voluntary evacuation was ordered for the Bolivar Peninsula, which has been hard hit for decades by flooding from hurricanes and tropical storms. Outside of Texas, the storm is expected to produce 6 to 9 inches with isolated maximum amounts up to 15 inches over southeastern Louisiana, southern Mississippi, southern Alabama, and western portions of the Florida Panhandle through Thursday night. Residents took the threat seriously enough on Wednesday, stripping store shelves of bottled water and stocking up on canned goods, flashlights, batteries and other supplies. The Texas Department of Transportation identified more than 35 locations around the greater Houston area where officials expected hi

Judge withdraws from costly legal representation in $3.5 million bail lawsuit

The bail suit was brought on behalf of Maranda ODonnell, a young mother who was held in the Harris County Jail because she couldn't afford to post $2,500 bail after being arrested for driving with a suspended license. The suit names all 16 criminal court at law judges as defendants, and one, Judge Darrell Jordan, previously opted to not to participate in the fight. Besides Fields, Jordan, who is a Democrat, is the only other African-American jurist on the Harris County criminal courts at law. Neal Manne, a Houston attorney who joined with two civil rights groups in filing the lawsuit on behalf of indigent defendants, said Fields' decision about legal representation evokes Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

TS Cindy closes in on the Gulf Coast

A disorganized weather system stirring in the Gulf of Mexico over the weekend has transformed into a tropical storm forecast to make landfall early Thursday along the Texas-Louisiana border, bringing heavy rainfall, strong winds and potential flooding. Emergency management crews in Galveston and Harris counties braced for Cindy, as the storm was officially named early Tuesday after its path and wind strength slowly mounted, posing a threat to a wide swath of the Gulf Coast. Shortly after the system morphed into a tropical storm and started shifting slightly west, the National Hurricane Center upgraded its watches to warnings for coastal communities in Cindy's path. Harris, Chambers, Galveston and Liberty counties and Galveston Bay and adjacent coastal waters were all under tropical storm warnings. National Weather Service meteorologist Dan Reilly said he expects Cindy to produce rain accumulations of 3 to 6 inches through Thursday in the Houston area, with minor river flooding for areas east of Interstate 45. Residents should prepare their homes for tidal flooding, strong gusting winds, power outages and heavy rains. Outside of Texas, weather service officials expect to see 6 to 9 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches over southeastern Louisiana, southern Mississippi, southern Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle through Thursday.

As mother is arraigned on capital murder charge, family, friends celebrate life of her 4-year-old daughter

Randy Sample and other tearful family members laid out candles during a vigil Tuesday evening in the shape of a number four. The girl's mother, Laquita Lewis, appeared Tuesday before state District Judge Maria Jackson where she was arraigned on a charge of capital murder in the death of her daughter Fredricka Allen. Police were called Sunday to Laquita Lewis' apartment in the 5600 block of Timber Creek Place about 8:40 p.m. where they found the child bleeding heavily on the floor of the master bedroom. Prosecutors said the child's father, Frederick Allen, called 911 after Lewis called him and said their daughter was no longer alive and "was in Heaven." "When the father asked her to clarify, the defendant stated, 'I stabbed her in the chest,'" said Missy Wheeler, with the Harris County District Attorney's Office. , Lewis, 34, is being examined for mental health issues, her lawyer said Tuesday. "She doesn't seem well," defense attorney Philip Scardino told reporters after his client appeared in court. [...] if the facts prove out to what (prosecutors) are saying, she's probably got some mental problems. Lewis, who appeared in court in an orange jail uniform, leg chains and handcuffed to a waist chain, did not speak except to say that she understood the charges against her and her rights. Lewis could face life without parole or the death penalty if convicted. er attorney said after Tuesday's hearing that so much of the case hinges on hearsay, admissions that Lewis allegedly told the child's father.
